Being airborne would certainly be helpful in law enforcement, allowing police officers to sniff out crime from a convenient vantage point. That’s what police in Dubai are thinking, anyway, as it was just announced that they’re looking to incorporate hoverbikes into the force in the future (via NBC News).
There’s no word yet on when these bikes will start seeing official law enforcement action, but either way, the future looks fascinating, and it’ll be interesting to see when this kind of technology reaches a consumer level. Would you buy a hoverbike like this (or at least make friends with the local billionaire who has one)? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
